Hidradenitis suppurativa is an inflammatory skin disease that affects an estimated 200,000 people each year in the U.S. This skin disease affects women three times more often than men, and it can cause pain, scarring and other uncomfortable symptoms. Skin expert Dr. Morgan Rabach at LM Medical NYC is a board certified dermatologist who can diagnose complex skin diseases, like hidradenitis suppurativa, and provide effective hidradenitis suppurativa treatment at our clinic in Manhattan.

Symptoms of Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)

HS usually begins after puberty, and the first symptoms are small bumps in areas like the arm pits, groin, inner thighs and buttocks where skin rubs together. HS involves an inflammation of the oil glands, creating pimple-like bumps that can grow up to the size of a marble. Not only are the bumps painful, but they can leak pus and fluid. This is a long-term skin disease, and over time, the skin can become scarred and movement of attached limbs can be painful. Skin infections, thickened skin and other skin damage can occur. HS can look similar to acne or boils, so it is important to have a dermatologist examination to receive an accurate diagnosis.

Treatment Options for HS

Early diagnosis and treatment for HS can help manage this disease. Lifestyle changes, like weight loss or quitting smoking, can help improve HS symptoms. Other treatments include antibiotics, corticosteroids and hormonal birth control. The only FDA-approved treatment for HS is a biologic medication that suppress the immune system called adalimumab. This medication is given by injection to help control HS. The right treatment depends on the severity of the symptoms.

If you have symptoms of hidradenitis suppurativa or received a diagnosis and want treatment, contact us at LM Medical NYC. We can schedule an appointment with renowned dermatologist Dr. Morgan to discuss HS treatment at our clinic in Greenwich Village.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
